    I believe this (black and white one) is the choice of the two roosters that I am going to keep for breeding next spring.

    This is the other one. Both of my black and white Ameracaunas/EEs were roos.

    They are working great. I need to put a catch pipe underneath the pipe as the ducks like to sit under the nipples with their beaks on the nipples and it runs on the ground.

    How old are your roos? I'm in a state of limbo with one of my chickens. At what age did their neck and saddle feathers grow long? if you remember.

    I bought them as less than a week old on June 17th. They are almost 4 months old. They have had their present plumage for about a month or so.
